how do you earn w's for this thing. I'm walking around but all it says under my pokemon is "7" and it keeps going to sleep

Every 20 steps is 1 w, or watt. The 7 means that you have 7 watts.

Once you have enough watts, use them to catch pokemon or find items. once you fill it up or don't want the pokemon in it anymore, go to the pokewalker menu and empty it out into your main game. it's as easy as that.

If anybody finds the pokewalker confusing or hard to figure out... Try figuring it out when everything is in Japanese and you can't read Japanese, like me when I got Soul Silver on the Japan release date haha..

if it only says 7 on the main menu (with your pokemon) then that means you only have 7 steps. try simulating walking with your hand (move the pokewalker around like if you were really walking) to get it going then put it in a jacket/pant pocket or your clip to count your steps. 20 steps = 1 watt.

Let the walker go to sleep. It doesn't count steps when the screen is active.

What i'd like to know is, what if you try to connect another person's pokewalker to your game?

It won't work. You'll get an error message that says you need to send the Pokemon back to your game, before you can connect.

Interesting... I've wanted to try but haven't had anyone else around to try it with. Thanks.

Ok thanks, now could you tell me what is the difference between Receive a Gift and Return from Stroll?

Returning from a stroll is sending your Pokemon back to your game, and I'm pretty sure the "Receive a Gift" option allows you to receive gifts from other Pokewalker devices.

Receive gift sends the items you find with the dowser, and any pokemon caught to your DS without returning your main pokemon. Return from stroll sends your main pokemon back. There may be more to it, but that's all I've noticed so far.

It sends you watts and items back without bringing the Pokémon back.

Isn't there a way to communicate between devices though? I haven't really gotten around to playing with mine yet, but I could have sworn I read something about being able to communicate with other Pokewalkers.

According to Serebii you can connect to other pokewalkers to send up to ten items and your current party (for the trainer house in viridian city). You can only connect to the other pokewalker once a day though.
